Welcome to my blog. I hope you find plenty of inspiration here. Nothing too fancy, no great skills required, just lots of cards, gifts and perhaps the odd bit of shopping.

My blog contains lots of links to freebies. Without sounding like "mother" can I ask you to leave a kind comment to the generous givers of such fabulous artwork. I know of at least a couple of artists who are feeling a bit unloved at the moment. Thanks. X

New quickie layout.

On wednesday i was stalking the galleries at SCS and noticed a simple but effective little layout for the latest clean and simple challenge. As my main challenge is my missing mojo this was just what i needed. "A new serving suggestion" as they say on that irritating Philadelphia advert.
Ain't that simple? Th stamp is my new one from Lily of the Valley. There was a set of 4 but i was very good and only ordered one.

I put some liquid pearls on the mistletoe and some glitter glue on the snow.The card base is 5"x5". I reckon i'll be making quite a few more from this little layout. If you want more inspiration there's plenty HERE.
     Off to get ready for work now. See you soon. Di. XX

Friday weigh in. 9st 8lbs. That stubborn pound is off making a total of 8lbs. Happier this week, i won't be quite so horrified if Patrick makes me eat a cake.

Edit for Sarah. Most of my cards are blank inside. Chrismas ones have merry christmas and a happy new year, which i print onto an insert an i'll do one for specials like mums 90th. Not easy to get these centered but when done they can be saved fo future use.


  1. Hi Di

    That is one great layout and one great card. Love what you have done with the image.

    I do find sketches so lovely to work with.

    Congratulations on reaching the 8lb mark. Woo hoo!

    Looking at your cards and previous posts makes me smile .. .. our stamp collections are pretty much identical!

    Have a great weekend.

    Love Jules xx

  6. Lovely card di!
    layout is a great idea and i love your colour sceam. I have been wondering if you put inserts in your cards or leave them blank?
